FILM fans have the opportunity to become a Rider of the Lost Ark when Carters Steam Fair comes to Hayes next weekend.

The Lost Ark is the focal point of the steam fair’s vintage rides and attractions, which will be on Park Road Green.

The steam fair is even offering the chance for over-78s to have a go on the jungle thriller for free when it rolls into Hayes on June 28 and 29. with a range of vintage rides, including a carousel, the Gallopers, which dates back to 1895.

In the off-season, the vintage rides are lovingly restored to their former glory, ready for their trips up and down the country throughout the summer.

Carters Steam Fair has received visits from a variety of celebrities over the years, including Princess Diana, Roger Daltery and Mick Jagger.

Michael Jackson even offered a multi-million pound deal to buy the funfair for his US Neverland home but had his offer rejected.
